Craigslist, an American classified advertisements website with presence in over 700 cities and 70 countries was founded by a Craig Newmark, a proud Jew and Chabad supporter • Full Story
Morristown Green reports that despite his legendary status, Craig Newmark is able to walk San Francisco’s streets and ride public transit openly and that Craig showed up for his interview with Morristown Green to talk about his connection to Judaism.
It is a part of his identity that played no small role in his decision to launch Craig Newmark Philanthropies in 2016 and to start giving back in an intentional way.
“I am not externally observant,” he said after the interview began. “Internally I’m very observant, given my take on the values I learned. For me, the intent and doing good works is more important than observance. I live the values without worrying about the practice.”
The article also states that Newmark supports local Chabad community efforts in Morristown.
